Ratings and Reviews
Love this app
App is great. A couple things to be even more helpful would be a communication thread between landlord and tenant. Also increasing the speed in which a deposit is completed. Lastly being able to tell when an invoice was sent or a if a notification reminder was sent to the tenant. So far this has been the best tool we have utilized. I would use it again for any new properties.

We’ve been WAITING FOR THIS
Been using this with my roommates for about a month and it’s SO. GOOD. Imagine the big whiteboard you probably hang in your kitchen to keep track of bills and rent and things, shrink it into a sexy little app and make it actually fun and useful, and you get this.
Lifelong user right here. Download and get your roommates on asap.
Best roommate app out there. Only thing that would be great would be more complete options and budget integration. So for the complete options would be cool to select multiple roommates who completed a task. And then budget integration would be great to keep track of the monthly expenses for the apartment.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
